Heat is the easiest way to control when it comes to the kitchen. Using the oven is very convenient, and the purpose of the process is to heat the crop at a low temperature. Despite the variety of strains that complicate the universal approach to the process, we have some recommendations.
1. To obtain THC, you need to bake cannabis for 30-40 minutes at about 240˚F (115˚C).
2. The process of extracting CBD from CBDA will take about 90 minutes at the same temperature.
3. If you intend to decompose THC to CBN, you need to heat the marijuana for 3 hours at 240˚F (115˚C).
Some factors can undoubtedly affect decarboxylation, so it is worth considering some nuances.
1. Control the temperature strictly. Extreme temperatures can destroy essential connections, so do not overheat cannabis. Examine the contents of your strain and find out in more detail what temperatures will be detrimental to the terpenes of your cannabis.
2. Kitchen ovens of the same brand can vary in temperature by up to 10 degrees. A 10-degree difference can be critical for your cannabis. Our recommendation is to purchase an oven thermometer for accurate measurements. It is also worth reducing the number of oven door openings. It changes the temperature of the environment dramatically, which can complicate the whole process.
3. A multicooker may also work fine for decarboxylation, but you will need a digital thermometer.
